NATO Army Folding Shovel
This army folding shovel is standard issue to all NATO troops. Also known as an entrenching tool, it is made from heavy duty steel which is built to last and will not fall apart after a few uses (like some cheap Asian copies do). The spade head tapers to a sharp point with saw like serrated edges and a lip at the rear to help get purchase when pushing into the ground with your feet. The shovel handle consists of 2 parts and a screw lock that allows the shovel head to be locked in 2 different positions, or the entire shovel to collapse into a 3rd of its length. This makes the NATO folding shovel very practical, easily stored and transported and ideal for camping or an emergency vehicle shovel.
Very good used condition (grade 1).
